I was just diagnosed with EBV after having been sick for 6 months. It started with constant nausea, fever, and utter exhaustion. Now, it is much more mild than in the beginning, but I aways feel a general feeling of fatigue, dehydration, and nausea. I am an extremely physically active person, energetic, and driven, and refuse to accept that I am just going to have to feel like this forever. I know that the symptoms can be somewhat controlled by making dietary changes, taking vitamins, etc. I was wondering if anybody out there with this condition has found a regimen that has helped them to manage the virus and live a somewhat normal life.

In addition, what kinds of laboratory tests/etc have people done in order to assess the situation, and are there other related conditions that I should be vigilant of?

Basically, I'm just looking for a very practical way to tackle this thing. In about 6 months I will be in a position to really seek good, thorough medical care but in the meantime I am out of the country doing volunteer work and have limited access to medical care. I'd like to do what I can while I am away to control the situation, then get after it with my doctors when I get home.

Thanks everyone.

i have had epstein-barr for about 3 years and the fatigue and symptoms come and go keeping a balanced diet and eating well really have made a differance in the frequency of the "attacks"

you have to have a blood test for diagnosis but they cant really tell you how bad it is via that...if it is really bad you can ask your doctor about anti-virals but i found they didnt really help
